PAUL XUEREB, A Bibliography of Maltese Bibliographies, University of Malta Library, M.U.P. 1978, 16 pp. + index, 50c.

I notice the following omissions: Joseph Galea's The French Occupation of Malta, — a study in. bibliography, Librairie Droz, Geneve 1959, 20 pp; Hannibal P Scicluna's Actes et Documents, Malta 1923 (new ed. 1979), and V Laurenza's original list of Maltese melodrammi in Archivum Melitense 1913. The bibliographical reference of my "Bibliography of Maltese" should have read: Atti del XIV Congr. Int. di Ling. e Fit. Romanza, Napoli — Amsterdam 1976-77, II, 611-641. Some items, I think, should have been omitted, including a no. of un­published dissertations and uncritical lists like the Malta Year Book's. All in all, however, this is a neat, worthwhile and welcome publication. We are right to ex­pect such publications from our Librarians.
